You would need to modify the Struts controller in order to bypass
server side validation.  This is technically feasible, but there is no
automated setting for it because (in general) it is a *very* bad idea.
 Web applications that folow best practices do not blindly trust that
clients will obey the rules, including performing client side
validation for you.  Indeed, you can't assume that your clients even
have JavaScript (or have it enabled).
